and welcome to "squawk box" here on cnbc. i'm andrew ross sorkin along with joe kernen. becky continues to have the day off today. our guest host today is bob broska. house speaker john boehner urging the senate to come up with a passable fiscal cliff solution. he's promising to at least consider any bill that the upper chamber produces. senate majority leader harry reid now expected to base any legislation on a bill passed earlier this year to continue tax breaks for households will incomes below $250,000. a senate bill would likely contain an extension of expiring unemployment benefits. and the other big news of the morning, treasury secretary tim geithner unveiling a plan to buy time under the debt ceiling. in a letter to congress, geithner saying that treasury is going to begin taking steps this week to delay hitting the government's 16$16.4 trillion borrowing limit. treasury will take several measures to save that next year to keep the government from reaching the limit for about two months. but geithner warns it is harder to predict how long the delay will last because of all of t
that you're talking about, people like panera, tjx, ross, the pet guys that you mentioned. it's a very recession resilient product. >> you have the most diversity of any of the real estate investors, isn't anyone that could take you down. >> kroger's the rest of our tenants, they're doing great. tjx, ross, safeway, the concentration of our tenants as you said, very diversified, very good names. and one of the things we're also working on is even more focusing our footprint to locations that are going to benefit from the growth because the markets we're in, texas, california, florida, the sun belt, the west, the good tax climates, the good business climates, places that benefit from immigration, migration, baby boomers, et cetera. >> well, that's important because one of the themes we've been hitting on is there's some things that can trump even what washington's done. meaning that they could set us back, but you've got some stories in here about areas that are just terrific where your development pipeline is and the storm balance sheet obviously. but it looks like you are in the genuin

, not stellar holiday shopping season and let's bring in carol ross, former investment banker, knows a thing or two about shopping and investment petailers, i'm saying, i'm tired of the excuses. i'm tired of hearing, oh, it's sandy or it's that or that and there's always an excuse when the economy starts to weaken, i just any the economy is weakening. what do you say? >> well, i agree, i mean, obviously, people have less money, they haven't been working and they're underemployed, but i do think that this is the big piece, stuart, this is pessimism. because you have to remember, even in the face of no money and no job, which has been going on for a while. consumer credit capacity actually has been increasing and consumers have been deleveraging and their home values have been going and theoretically they have more credit capacity, the fact that they're not using that capacity says to me, they're not optimistic about the future. >> i can see that this fiscal cliff thing is a problem. because nobody knows what's going to happen. you have no certainty for next year, so, i can see the fiscal clif

ross sorkin. our guest host this hour is julia sed. fiscal cliff negotiations, our top story. now president obama is proposing leaving lower tax rates in place for everyone except those earning $400,000 and above. that's above the $250,000 threshold that the president has been demanding for months, but it is still far from speaker john boehner's request of $1 million. a source familiar with the talk says this is by no means the final offer for the white house. the move by the president was welcomed, albeit with some reservations. we will talk about the latest developments in just a few minutes. in the meantime, the global markets seem to be taking note of the optimism. you can see right now that those dow futures are up by 54 points. this comes after a decent rally for the markets yesterday. s&p futures at this point are up by better than seven points and the nasdaq futures up, as well, by about 17. european shares rising. germany is up, the ftse is up, the france, the cac in france has turned slightly down. but, again, this is a marginal loss of about three points. most of the ma

and andrew ross sorkin. we are one step closer to the cliff and still no deal. you could say we've taken a huge step backwards at this point. we will be joined to talk about why plan b, that bill didn't make it to the house and what the next step is. coming at 6:40 eastern time, red hat has been red hot. that company reporting quarterly results and we have the ceo. at 7:00 a.m. eastern time, we will welcome our guest host, roger altman and barry knapp. we have thorsten heins joining us, as well. >> our big story of the morning, it could be a tense days for the markets as the resolution to the physical cliff appears less likely. we can see the futures opening at least 150 off if things keep up the way they are. house speaker john boehner failing to mount enough support for his plan b that would raise taxes only on families earning more than $1 million. the president vowing he will press ahead with congress to get a deal done. >> he wasn't going to do it, anyway. what does he mean it will press ahead? >> i don't know. >> because it wasn't going to go to the senate. >> but to me, the demons

're avoiding, the big one, are the entitlements and the spending. now ross lynn carter -- and this is so ironic, because in many ways president carter was probably one of the most dysfunctional presidents, or at least didn't have the efficacy to ever put together a record that was to be proud. but the first lady had one of my all-time favorite quotes and i've used it before. we're going to show it on the screen. a leader takes people where they want to go. a great leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go, but ought to be. so let's go over this one more time. today we had senator warner on. and you know what, i really liked a couple things he said. because what he said was, is think outside the box. see, we need to get away from the blame game, get away from the red herring. he says, well, start a debt reduction sinking fund. i haven't heard that idea. there are many ideas, but the point is, is that the president has a legacy to protect. okay? many people, including, you know -- we had jim bianco on last week and were talking about where the leverage is, and it's unfortunate,
a great holiday. ross, they're the number two off price retailer. that's been a really good name. i think the momentum continues with that company as well. so it's just mixed across my group. you just have -- there are some winners and there are some losers. there's not a lot of consistency. i cover value retailers. you would have thought this would have been a value focused holiday season. even within the discount store space the traffic was pretty subdued. >> that's interesting. howard is the big story in the next week or two going to be how painful clear -- the process of clearing out inventory is and how deep the discounts go? >> yeah. i'm not sure that it's going to be all that painful, right? i mean, it seems like we're finally getting winter weather conditions which is going to help with boots and coats. last year the weather was very easy. we have that to look forward to. last year was a very, very difficult holiday season fourth quarter. this year going into the holiday season, inventories were much leaner so there's less probably this year versus last year to get through. so des
